Hong Kong ‘BBC’ Ordered To Support China National Security…

Sharing is Caring!

China has further curtailed press freedoms in Hong Kong after staff at the territory’s embattled public broadcaster were forced to support national security laws and the interests of the Chinese government.

Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK), founded in 1928, is the only publicly funded media outlet on Chinese soil and is sometimes compared to the BBC in the UK.

The Hong Kong and Chinese governments were angry about the network’s coverage of anti-government protests that swept the city in 2019 over draconian security laws, which critics said tore up civil liberties and crushed dissent against Beijing.
